Working Party Levies
Fees and subscriptions are comparatively low at Winsford, partly because we do a lot of the construction work and maintenance at the club ourselves. Five working parties are held annually, two in the spring, one in the summer, and two in the autumn. All members are encouraged to help in maintaining and improving the club premises. Free meals and refreshments are usually provided.
Some members prefer to pay a Working Party Levy instead of attending; this goes towards paying for materials and specialists to do the work we cannot do ourselves. It applies to one member of a family group or an individual member (over 21 and under 65) and is payable with the following years subscriptions. The full levy is £80, attendance at one working party in a year reduces this to £40 and attendance at two cancels it completely. Any member who has joined after the spring working parties only has to attend one working party to qualify for full levy relief.
